Youth shoots at cops inside Kanpur police station

Friday March 30, 2012 09:57:50 AM, IANS

Kanpur: A sub-inspector and a constable of Uttar Pradesh police were shot at and critically wounded inside a police station by a drunken youth here early Friday, police said.

Sub-inspector Devendra Singh was shot at twice in the head by a youth at the Naubasta police station where he is the station officer. He was rushed to the Regency Hospital where he is battling for life, police spokesman said.

The constable injured in the firing is in serious condition but out of danger.

Police officials told IANS the incident took place around midnight. The youngster, whom Singh had chided after complaints by his father that he used to create a ruckus in the house, barged into the police station and, before any one could understand what was happening, whipped out his revolver and shot Singh, police said.

In a bid to escape, he also shot at the constable on duty. The youngster was overpowered by other security personnel and arrested, police said.

The profusely bleeding policemen were rushed to the hospital where Singh is in critical condition while the other cop is in the ICU but out of danger.

The incident has sent shockwaves in the police establishment as this is a rare instance when an official was attacked inside the police station.
